Humane Medicine — Rhyme and Reason

Poetry has fallen out of favor these days, especially in medical journals, where evidence-based outcome reviews and studies have become publishing’s gold standard. Yet three decades of practice have taught me that every patient encounter is a poem yearning to be composed and reflected upon.

Interested readers can now access my latest Humane Medicine column, Rhyme and reason: Searching for poems in medical practice, recently published in the Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants.
